Grand Seiko has revealed three exclusive models for Watches of Switzerland. Presented in the brand’s classic 62GS case, the new models measure 40mm in case diameter with a thickness of 12.5mm. The stainless steel watch case is finished with the brand’s signature Zaratsu-style polishing, framing the radiant, mosaic-like dial that draws references from the starry night skies.
Arriving in three different colorways, spanning black, green, and purple spotlighted on the watch’s mesmerizing dial. Each color option nods to a different place in the Japanese city of Miyako, which is located in the Iwate Prefecture. SBGH333 stars a black dial that pays homage to the Jodogahama beach at night, where its blue seconds hand symbolizes the moonlit sea. Meanwhile the SBGH335 “Nova Green” and SBGH337 “Nova Purple” evoke a more dynamic and cosmic mood of Miyako Bay’s coastal scenery.
Powered by Grand Seiko’s Hi-Beat 3600 9SA5 caliber, the watches are also geared with Dual Impulse escapements and 80 hours of power reserve. Starting December 1, the assortment of watches will be available only in the U.S. or the U.K. The “Nova Green” and the “Nova Purple” references will be offered in a limited run of 200 examples each.
